Where's Whinnie?

Hi all, I thought I would steal a leaf from Burns' page and give a titbit of our travels.

At this very moment I have just woken up from an LLD (little lie down), after lunch. I am sitting on the daybed on our balcony of our room on the beach on Lembongan Island. Yes, Ilab, that is the balcony of the surfer's Losman, we are staying at, lol. If I look up I am looking west towards Bali, the sun is shining, there is a beautiful breeze and the boats on the water in front of me are bobbing on the very blue, very clear water. We have a view worth millions of dollars and are loving it. It is budget accommodation but oh what a location. We even have our own ensuite bathroom (too old now to share, lol) and can report that this is the first outdoor bathroom we have ever had where it is very possible to get sunburnt whilst sitting on the toilet......

This morning was spent snorkelling with 5 other people (all very much younger and slimmer than us) at 2 amazing locations closeby. But am pleased to report that this old girl put up a good showing and managed to keep up with them all and in some cases outlast them. It was $12 well spent.....

This afternoon we have booked 2 (yes 2) scooters to go exploring the island on our own. If you know anyone on Lembongan at the moment, please contact them to warn them. I haven't riden a scooter in about 30 years so this will be very interesting....

Well must run now, have places to go, people to meet and bintang to drink. Busy, busy, busy........

i thought this was going to be like where's wally. the title sucked me in.

anyway where's RT

i typing from my 'cave'. the rays of the sunset are flittering through the trees, lighting up my cave in a calming ambience. the day has been hot with just a hint of cooling breeze on the beach. i spent the morning walking the isolated bush track to Box Head and Little Tallow Beach. i shared this beach with a few crabs and my own thoughts.

so it looks like your having a good relaxing time. enjoy. RT

Your presence on these posts has been missed - you know so many of the questions people ask.

Great fun on Lembongan isn't it. Go to Bali Hai for sunset drinks - all the crowds have gone back to the mainland by then.

Have a great holiday and don't get sunburnt.

Hi Whinnie

I have been wondering about you since Tuesday night and am very glad to hear that you are not lost on Lembongan! Glad to hear you have your own toilet, even if it is in the sun! I have just come back from lunch at Biku after an amazing massage with Yanto. i am ready for a nanny nap. You sound very busy and far too energetic for me but then again you are years younger......

Dear Whinnie, don't exert yourselve too much. I have taken the liberty of notifying Lembongan Police to clear the streets and have an ambulance on standby. Just a tip, sunscreen applied to the cheeks (that haven't seen a lot of sun) when snorkelling for long periods of time is a must. This learn't the hard way on a trip to cairns in my younger days. Third degree burns to this area is bound to spoil the holidays. Enjoy your bintang, I am off to cook dinner for the army (this being my family). They do not call us rent-a-crowd for nothing.

Waaaaaaaaaaah!!! That's me wanting to go to Bali - wait, then again, that's the baby crying!

Where's Whinnie? Enjoying herself in Bali. :-)

Where's Jade? Somewhere in between the changing table for the baby, or her bedroom, trying to catch 40 winks or plopped in front of the telly, feeding baby or at the bin throwing the disposable nappies away or taking baby to hospital for checkups or going to work or, or....!! Waaaaaaah! But enjoying zombiefied every minute of it. ;-P
